The Search XR is simultaneously non-conformist yet familiar, pushing the limits of what you'd expect from a drop bar bike. With tire clearance up to 700 x 45c (or 650B x 2.1"), rack, fender and bottle mounts, and a lightweight carbon frame, the Search XR is an all-new breed of adventurer that takes you off the beaten path and allows you to ride every road and trail your heart desires. Explore singletrack, bomb down fire roads, tackle a gravel grinder or load up for a bikepacking trip – better yet, check “all of the above". We designed the Search XR for all the adventures you can imagine, and for those you have yet to dream up.
Lightweight carbon with Size-Scaled Tubing, SmoothCore, and ArmorLite resin for a stiff and durable frame. ARC Endurance system features bridgeless seat stays and curved, ovalized chainstays for improved vertical compliance.
Front and rear 12mm thru axles plus an oversized head tube junction, downtube, BB shell and chain stays deliver lateral stiffness for maximum power transfer as well as control through rough terrain.
Ample clearance for 27.5” x 2.1” or 700c x 28c-45c tires (up to 42c with full fenders).
Multiple bottle cage mounts on the frame and fork, custom removable fender bridge mount, and stealth rack and fender mounting points for maximum utility.
Prevents cable rattle and keeps debris out of the frame; offers riders a wide range of configuration options including full Di2 compatibility and 2x11 drivetrains with a stealth dropper post.
